College Colors Day

Get Mason GearCollege Colors Day is nationally organized by our partner, IMG College Licensing, and was first celebrated in 2005. It always falls on the Friday before Labor Day. College Colors Day seeks to celebrate and promote the spirit that makes college traditions great, such as “back-to-school”, by encouraging students, faculty/staff, alumni and fans to wear apparel of their favorite college throughout the day of Friday, September 1, 2017.

George Mason University will celebrate College Colors Day on Friday, September 1. College Colors Day also kicks off another school year of Spirit Fridays at Mason where the Mason community is encouraged to wear Mason gear every Friday to show their spirit and pride. Wear your colors and be a part of College Colors Day!
